camoes (206) - PORTUGAL - NOV 16, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 1D). Draft @ Hausbrauerei Altstadthof. AROMA: grainy sweet aroma with some straw notes. APPEARANCE: gold color and translucent. average white head with medium retention. TASTE: slightly sweet malty flavour with a médium bitterness that lingers into a semi-dry finish. PALATE: thin body with low carbonation. OVERALL: a nice Nuremberg Hells.

kappldav123 (5155) - GERMANY - OCT 27, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Mild malty aroma. Starts quite mild, fine malty, a bit wheaty-grasy. Not much hoppy notes. So the finish is a bit boring-malty. Okay.

thellgren (308) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2014
0.2 l draught @ Hausbrauerei Altstadthof (included in beer tasting palette). Pale and light tasting, but since this is not Helles from Munich, there’s some hints of hops. This could be quite refreshing during hot summer day.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Nuremberg. Clear orange gold colour lasting off white head. Tasty enough helles some character and firmness in the mouth. Some hop sting on the finish. Fine.

blipp (6326) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft. Poured into a ceramic mug with an off white head. Pale grainy malts, a hint of hops, and a quick finish. Juuust a hint of diacetyl. Average at best.

EithCubes (5085) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Tap in Nürnberg, dark clear orange with a short beige head. Soapy malty nose. Dry and surprisingly hoppy taste, rustic edge. Medium body. Not so moreish.

kiwianer (3380) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 8, 2012
On Tap @ the brewpub. The head is medium. It tastes special malty, flowery. Medium-ok. 11/8/9/9/-/9

Marko (4053) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Poured a slightly hazy, lovely golden body with an off white head. Pretty much no aroma, maybe some light huskiness? Hay & eggs? Crappy light beety taste. The mouthfeel is nice, mind you, but there’s not much to it overall and I’m quite sure that all four of us who were there considered it to be by far the worst of the bunch.

Ernest (6342) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Draught at Altstadthof. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), with a STRONG note of butter/diacetyl, light note of soured fruit. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. An absolute butter bomb. Horrible.
